SUBMISSION GUIDELINES & REVIEW PROCESS

Please note: the Call for Workshops is closed!

Submitted workshop proposals will be reviewed by the ISC 2024 Workshop Committee.

Submission Process

  • Proposal for workshops with their own call for papers: closed
  • Proposal for workshops without their own call for papers: closed
  • Upload as single PDF file with important items such as workshop scope, relevance and impact of the workshop for ISC; list of tentative program committee members and/or steering committee; format (e.g., talks, panel sessions, keynote); expected outcome, and strategies for advertise and attract attendees.
  • Submission of the workshop programme (website): Submit a valid web link (a pdf document is acceptable for workshops without proceedings) to a working workshop website with general information about the workshop and the agenda. The website does not need to be final and can be updated with more details until the day of the workshop. The ISC website will list all workshops and link to their submitted websites.

Review

  • Each workshop proposal is expected to receive a minimum of 3 reviews
  • Workshops will be evaluated based on originality, significance, quality, and clarity

 

TERMS & CONDITIONS

  • By submitting a workshop proposal, you agree to organize and host the workshop at ISC 2024 in Hamburg, Germany
  • Workshop organizers and speakers need to register for an ISC 2024 workshop pass. ISC will grant a 100% discount of 1 workshop pass to organizers of half-day workshops and 2 workshop passes to organizers of full-day workshops.
  • ISC will provide meeting room facilities and basic technical equipment for the workshops. Workshop organizers/speakers will have to bring their own presentation laptops and adapters.
  • The workshop organizers will have to align their program with the workshop break schedule (morning sessions are from 9:00 am to 11:00 am and 11:30 am to 1:00 pm; afternoon sessions are from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm and 4:30 pm to 6:00 pm, with coffee breaks and lunch in between). Catering during coffee and lunch breaks will be provided to all registered workshop attendees.
  • ISC will promote the workshops as part of the regular conference publicity activities. However, it is recommended that workshop organizers use their own channels to further attract attendees to their events.
  • ISC will not be able to cover travel, accommodation, registration fees, and other such costs.
PUBLICATIONS

Conference Proceedings

The post-conference Workshop Proceedings will be published with Springer’s Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS).

We will organize the proceedings in a lightweight fashion. The workshop proceedings (minimum of 6 pages, maximum of 12 pages per workshop paper including bibliography and appendices with 2 possible extra pages after the review to address the reviewer's comments) will be published after the conference. Workshop organizers are also free to organize the publication of paper proceedings on their own.

Presentation Materials for Attendees

ISC will make the presentation slides available within the event platform for registered attendees only.
